Hi world, WindowBlinds works fine for me and my taskbar icons are just fine.Textures worked for me on frames but not on taskbar or explorer windows. Also textures did not work on apps with their own custom frames or windows apps or metro apps.
This was done by:
Going to the WindowBlinds settings
Go to per application tab
Add explorer.exe from windows dir or wherever yours is stored
Click on total exclusion
restart explorer in Task Manager
Warning, all explorer windows will look like win 98, not themed.
Post back if it works for you, gl.
Windowblinds is a program to skin/enhance the Windows Shell.
Explorer.exe IS the Windows Shell.
Setting Windowblinds to exclude skinning/applying to the Windows Shell is akin to simply disabling/uninstalling it.
That's not so much a 'work around' but an alternate way to 'turn it off'...
